Have you found yourself lost in refreshing your spring wardrobe? Transitioning from winter to spring requires not only a season-appropriate street style, but also an organized closet where you’ll draw your fashion pieces. The mind behind Natalie Off Duty blog, Natalie Suarez is a style blogger and model know for her eclectic and classic look featuring earth tones from her California upbringing. Let’s check her “to-do” list when she starts to refresh her closet to refresh your wardrobe with ease.
- Don’t keep 5 of everything.
When it comes to refreshing your wardrobe, the less is more principle applies. “I used to keep everything and it made it impossible to find that white blouse I was looking for. The more organized I am, and the less clothes I own, the better I feel,” Natalie said. Sometimes, you only need one plain shirt, a pair of skinny jeans, one wool coat, one black blazer and one button-down shirt that you may only wear once this season. “I don’t think a girl needs more than say, 5 t-shirts. I keep a lot of quirky, timeless, statement items. With that, I can mix with the basics,” she said. Like her, may you spring outfit lies in your creative skills and mixing and matching your separates, not how stylish or trendy your pieces are.
- Hang things up.
Hang your blouses, coats, and dresses to make you find everything that you need. “I used to have everything folded in cabinets, and suddenly, it just became an unfolded mess. Now, I get those black velvet thin hangers. They save a ton more room, and look a lot cleaner,” she said. It’s up to you whether you’re going for a color separation or group your staples according to its kind. By doing this, you’ll be able to see everything before getting dressed in the morning.
- You don’t have to get rid of everything.
“I have definitely made the mistake of throwing away everything, and realizing I wish I had that dress right about now, it was a good one,” she said. So, it’s just okay to have a good selection of dresses, jumpsuits, skirts, and blouses, but make sure it’s a variety and a mix of different styles. Like we’ve said earlier, don’t stock up on 10 of the same wrap maxi dress. A few maxi dresses for the beach, and some casual mini dresses for casual walks will be great. “I will never get rid of my vintage wool coats, or leather jackets. Those never go out of style, and they are my necessity.” She stated.
- Refresh your wardrobe to refine your style.
By refreshing your wardrobe, you’ll be able to refine your style whether it’s a bit bohemian, casual, dressy, chic, sophisticated, or edgy. “I love a great embroidered blouse and anything denim that I can wear a million different ways. A velvet skirt can be worn in the winter with tights and a turtleneck or in the spring with bare shoulders and sandals,” she said. Indeed, refreshing your wardrobe for spring is a great way to be more creative, unexpected, and refined on your street looks.
